Okay, now it’s the time for talking about animals, which can be really close to your heart (pets), but some of you can really afraid of them. Are there animals which you really are afraid of? Or is there something that you love? Do you have any pets? Want to tell us about it/them?March 20, 2018 at 6:32 am #8356

I have a terrible phobia for reptiles.March 20, 2018 at 4:19 pm #8364

Yeah lucky for you that you do not run to those jellies. 😉 Me, I have a 2-year-old labrador that is so naughty, he got no training since young and I’m thinking of training here a little bit. Can ou give me some suggestion on how to train a dog or any device use to train a dog if you have any idea? By the way, how can I change my Avatar?March 21, 2018 at 1:40 pm #8401
Scared shitless of Mountain Lions. Was stationed at a Naval base in Tennessee. Buddy asks if I want to go for a ride and take in the sites. Said sure. After about two hours of driving through forests and small towns and smoking some wicked pot we get the munchies and happen upon a 7/11 type convenience store. My buddy pulls up next to a Jeep Wrangler with the top off. He gets out and as I get out of the passenger side, right next to the Wrangler, I hear and feel a low tone growl. Without seeing it I knew right away what it was. Slowly turn around and sitting in the passenger seat of the Wrangler is a full grown mountain Lion. Chained by it’s neck to the roll bar. Young kid in cowboy boots and a cowboy hat bounds out of the convenience store, gets in the driver seat, and rolls off with his pet Mountain Lion in the passenger seat. I almost shit my pants that day.March 21, 2018 at 4:30 pm #8402

Black widow spiders are my phobia, since one bit me, also since they overran the place I long ago rented.
I have a lovely rescue cat (Sabrina) who looks like a little girl polar bear (chunky and muscular with super thick snowy white fur). She is more like a dog than a cat, very smart, eager to please, teases and plays rough, however very cuddly and lovable. She makes a sweet little chortling sound whenever she happens to see me.
I also have a wild bird friend who visits my window, a little black phoebe who happens to also be the alpha phoebe in the local phoebe population. How do I know that? Because I watched him win the alpha competition myself! They didn’t hold another lek (a get-together of about 20 phoebe alpha candidates held annally) this year because they obviously still considered him to be alpha. And he’s the tiniest black phoebe alpha I’ve ever seen. Wow…what a bird, though! The real birding name is “tyrant flycatcher”. He will swoop right at your face in a territorial display if you do something he doesn’t like, such as staring at him too long through the window screen (which my cat did, and yes he swooped at her). Hence the name TYRANT.
I no longer keep a dog because I’m too old to walk one. But I think Olive is right. The dog whisperer tells you what a dog needs. When its needs are met (exercise, crate training, proper eating and elimination habits, and vet care, etc.) then you can more easily think about discipline.March 23, 2018 at 6:34 am #8421
Sound like lovely companions!March 23, 2018 at 6:50 pm #8424
When I had to euthanize my 17 year old dog in January, I was devastated. I became very depressed and still not fully better. I recently made a deposit to reserve a new puppy, which if it is born and weaned OK may be in my arms in June.
I don’t have a fear of any animals, but there are times to respect predators and dangerous animals. I kept bees for a few years, never liked getting stung but it didn’t bother me too much. Mostly I felt sad that when a bee stung me, that meant it would die soon.
Naturally, I’m not getting close to wild felines, crocodilians, or wasps. It’s not a phobia, just normal caution.March 23, 2018 at 7:53 pm #8425
That’s something to look forward to, Daniel. Pure bred, or mix?
How is your eye?

JBSO, the eye is fully healed, thanks for asking. I’m in awe of what can be done – they cut a hole into the eyeball, suck out all of the gel, use microscope and laser to reattach the retina to the inside of the eyeball, pressurize it with gas, and glue the hole shut. The eyeball gradually re-fills with clear serum that oozes in from the blood vessels. I can’t believe this works, but the vision is back to normal now.
Is it possible to be a purebreed mix? Labradoodle. Won’t bring back my beloved companion, but will help fill the void he left.March 24, 2018 at 1:56 am #8428
Yes, that’s a pretty impressive procedure, & very glad it was successful!
Hard to believe I have a plastic/metal hip, & I can walk normally! Isn’t science great?!
Glad you’ll get another labradoodle….have heard many good things about them. Hope you’ll post some photos.April 16, 2018 at 3:19 am #8771
I’m afraid of any animal that can kill me and is avoidable (it’s hard to avoid mosquitos, which can kill me). Don’t put me in a room with a jaguar or grizzly bear or in a tank with a tiger shark.May 21, 2018 at 1:24 am #9241
